. >> let me get this straight. you think the whole yes or no back and forth between john mccain and chuck hagel on the 2007 iraq surge was actually par for the course, that that was -- >> in fact, kind of interesting, right? >> in terms of a psychodrama. >> the republican party was over the iraq war, where they are attacking him as for opposing the iraq war. >> it's not that i don't think we can talk about the iraq war or the war in afghanistan for that matter, but the notion that you should have a yes or no answer to the iraq surge, which in many ways -- john mccain thinks the history books have been written on this. i believe -- >> no, it's still an open debate. absolutely. >> it's ongoing. we still -- >> people did vote against the iraq surge. that seems to be a totally relevant thing to talk about now. >> i think the iraq surge is relevant. i think asking for a yes or no answer on it seems particularly short-sighted. >> not defending that. >> in the "new york times" there is an op ed that says the senators, especially republicans, did a poor job of drawing substance out of the moment,
. the hard sell and john mccain gets an earful in the meeting over immigration reform. take a look. >> why didn't the army go down there and stop them? the only thing that stops them i'm afraid to say and it's too damn bad, but is a gun. >> we will talk with latino ronald reyes about whether republicans will get anything done on immigration when they say things like what you just heard. we are following the latest on the bail hearing on oscar pistorius. one detective testifying that police found no inconsistencies in his story. we will have a live report for you and you can always join our conversation on twitter. you can find us at tamron hall and "news nation." we are back after this. so you say men are superior drivers? yeah. then how'd i get this...

on the record saying that they would look at revenue to block these cuts, the sequester. john mccain said that the other day. republicans to exact a political victory here need to get spending cuts. i mean, they settled for a deal in the fiscal cliff that was not good for party leaders. they are going to hold very, very tight on that, and, by the way, after the sequester -- >> do you think that tea party response is almost sort of covering their bases there? i mean, the tea partiers get to say we had a strong message and held tight to our values. you know, these moderates went and made deals with the president. we're not to blame. if you -- in effect trying to sort of head off primary challenge if one is going to come up in 2014. >> that's the question. ran paul is playing a tough game. he has a personal history with mcconnell, who supported, you know, his challenger down there originally, and now he is trying to come out and do what cantor has done, which is get credits for making noise, but ultimately to jake's point, what you have here is a little bit like if you have ever been in a re
. even senator john mccain now backing away from his no filibuster stance of weeks past. the majority leader harry reid took to the floor of the last hour to make this impassioned plea. >> in less than two hours, our country will be without a secretary of defense. there is never in the history of the country been a filibuster of a defense secretary nominee. never. but it's shocking that my republican colleagues would leave the nation without a fully empowered secretary of defense. >> debate on chuck hagel is not over. i am going to fight the idea of jamming somebody through. i'm going to hit you and keep hitting you. >> every republican there voted against moving the hagel nomination out of committee. there has to be a reason for that. why is it we're having to rush in to the confirmation. >> so just two days after the president's call to action to congress on gun control, nra ceo wayne lapierre is expected to give his decision on the state of the union tonight. hold on to your hats, it's going to be a doozy. he writes hurricanes, tornadoes, riots, terrorists, gangs, lone criminals, t
they are going to vote for him. john mccain saying he would oppose any filibuster on his confirmation vote. >> it seems michael. there aren't. lined see gram of south carolina has indicated he would like to see president obama nominate someone else and chuck hagel's name removed for contention but there is no one saying they are going to filibuster. it looks like it will go through. you have seen very powerful outside groups at play in the election weigh in heavily, spending half a million dollars on nationally televised ads against chuck hagel's nomination but it doesn't look like there are big road blocks here. >> national televised ads against chuck hagel have no impact on the decision. >> their plan was to target democrats up for reelection in 2014, hope the pressure of the public to call their elected officials and get them to vote no on hagel. there are some folks like jim inhofe, the ranking member on the senate armed services, who will vote no. >> is itt doesn't have to be 100%. >> the bottom line is there aren't enough republicans out there saying
.s. military. >> michael: unbelievable. after those comments even senator john mccain told him to tone it down. and mccain has bipartisan support on this one. democratic senators dianne feinstein and claire mccaskill compared him to joseph mccarthy who accused american citizens of being communist. but toning it down is not in his repertoire. he was at it again. just to give you flavor for the place, this is the poster for larue tactical where the senator chose to call president obama's gun control initiatives wrong. those are mild from what he said in the past. cruz argued that the gun show loophole does not exist. he's a loophole truther. >> there actually isn't the so-called gun show loophole. that does not exist. >> michael: reminder, this man has degrees from harvard and princeton. clearly republicans have not learned from the last election. when americans made it clear that they do not reward crazy. cruz is now headline the super bowl of the conservative right. craze rewards crazy. he was at ted cruz's speech today and he comes to us from austin. welcome to the war room. >> great to be he
gillibrand will be sitting with john mccain. joe manchin will be sitting with republican mark kirk. democratic senator mark begich of attorney general will sit with a republican congressman from his own state, don young. in illinois it will be a democratic and republican congress. sitting with republican rodney davis. in virginia they're doing the same thing. secretary john kerry now, in virginia it will be democratic senator tim kaine with randy forbes, president interacting there with members of the supreme court. ruth bader ginsburg, steven breyer. >> probably the most important vote for president obama was right there, the chief justice, who voted for the health care plan. >> that's right. toes are the president's two appointees to the supreme court there. this is sonia sotomayor, two of the unheralded but very, very important accomplishments of his first time, the confirmation of those two supreme court justices, sonia sotomayor, of course, the first latina supreme court justice in the nation's history. the president now greeting joint chiefs, including ray odierno who is the
to everybody? especially when we talk about chuck hagel because basically john mccain gave john kerry a piggy back ride to his hearing. he was the biggest obstacle in the hagel hearing. and john kerry voted against the iraq surge too just like hagel did. what's the difference? >> it's not hagel's a republican or democrat, it shouldn't matter, he's the president's choice. this is not supposed to be a witch hunt, which is what republicans currently are making the nomination about. the problem is all of these nominations they're trying to basically make headlines over. and that's just fundamentally wrong. and i would advise republicans to remember, eventually they're going to get the white house back and they're not going to want to have this on the other side. they should treat all the nominees with the proper respect. they can question it and vote against them, but don't do this filibuster thing. >> is getting 60 votes in the senate going to be the standard moving forward? >> i don't think it will. you are seeing a movement to get away from that. they're not going to fundamentally filibuster,
on the chuck hagel vote on armed services. when john mccain comes in as a critic and ends up having to defend chuck hagel because of the very sharp attack from ted cruz. let's watch. >> we saw with his nomination something truly extraordinary which is the government of iran formally and publicly praising the nomination of a defense secretary. i would suggest to you that is unprecedented to see a foreign nation like iran publicly celebrating a nomination. >> i want to put on the record that this senator feels like that senator cruz has gone over the line. he basically has impugned the patriotism of the nominee. >> senator hagel is an honorable man. he's served his country, and no one on this committee at anytime should impugn his character or his integrity. >> so, chuck todd, ted cruz has made a mark already. this isn't the first instance? >> no, he's not. i've been thinking about this, this new -- if you want to say this is more evidence. but you know, i remember a young rick santorum coming in breaking some traditions. >> boy, did he. >> breaking when he did this, three, four, five years lat
and john mccain are going to the white house. they're going to have a meeting with the president on immigration, but during the gaggle, the free-flowing with the pool, the back and forth between the white house press secretary and the traveling press corps, they did say sequester would likely come up in that conversation between mccain, graham, and the president. any chance that those three could strike a deal? >> i can't -- sorry. >> i will say very quickly, i don't see how even if they did how we would avert the sequester on friday, chuck. congress doesn't work like that. this seems to be at least the possible opening engagement of the talks of a deal. i mean, that's the amazing thing about sequester. >> we can't even schedule talks. >> negotiations have broken down. no, negotiations never began. having them break down would actually be a step in the right direction. >> swraent even had -- >> we have seen this movie before where what will happen in the final day or two as they come to some agreement not on any kind of a deal in terms of addressing the underlying issue, but mere
the impact on a military would be devastating. >> well, you bring them up. >> lindsey graham and john mccain are going to the white house. they're going to have a meeting with the president on immigration, but during the gaggle, the free-flowing with the pool, the back and forth between the white house press secretary and the traveling press corps, they did say sequester would likely come up in that conversation between mccain, graham, and the president. any chance that those three could strike a deal? >> i can't -- sorry. >> i will say very quickly, i don't see how even if they did how we would avert the sequester on friday, chuck. congress doesn't work like that. this seems to be at least the possible opening engagement of the talks of a deal. i mean, that's the amazing thing about sequester. >> we can't even schedule talks. >> negotiations have broken down. no, negotiations never began. having them break down would actually be a step in the right direction. >> swraent even had -- >> we have seen this movie before where what will happen in the final day or two as they come to some agreemen
to cut a deal. >> now we know the president did reach out to two leading senate republicans john mccain, lindsey graham, invited them to come over to the white house todays on -- today to talk about immigration reform but he wants to talk about sequester these forced budget cuts. what's going on. has that meeting yet taken place? >> reporter: that meeting was scheduled to take place about half hour ago. we were told by the white house that the meeting could cover a range of topics so that could include immigration. these budget cuts. and perhaps other topics that have come up on capitol hill recently. who knows maybe foreign affairs and other issues. so presumably it's going on right now and i'll give you a read out as soon as we have it. >> brief us on what happens. i'm curious to see how much of an effort there was made by the president and these two republican senators to work out a deal, perhaps at least start a negotiation during these final three days to avert these forced spending cuts. >> we were told when the president called john mccain, senator mccain last week that's when th
of these international obligations. >> on the issue of -- [inaudible] john mccain said today that the borders are not secure and arizona remains the main drug pipeline from drugs coming from mexico. until this issue is resolved there would be no path to citizenship. understanding the numbers there, still how will the white house certify, how will the white house propose to convince those along the borders that what they are saying is not true? >> i think we made the point clearly backed up by independent data that our borders are more secure since the president took office. we made grade strides in border security in the last several years. we have designated significant resources to that. that effort is resulting in fewer -- we're producing positive results in terms of migration. we have never said that the work is done. that's why when the president talks about comprehensive immigration reform and the president lays out his blue print that he has done more than a year. the number one priority is continuing to take necessary action to enhance our border security following on the work that ha
to be confirmed. one thing that's interesting, john mccain, remember, has said that he believes chuck hagel will be confirmed ultimately. john mccain, by the way, was not one of those senators who wrote that letter to the white house asking the president to withdraw chuck hagel's nomination. >> kristen welker e thanks so much with you and we'll check back with you later in the show. >> sounds good. >>> after nearly 40 years in public office, defense secretary leon panetta may have thought he'd be retired by now, but he thought wrong. panetta is still on the job. at a nato brussels in conference, a conference that was supposed to be intended by former senator chuck hagel. hagel has not taken the mantel as they blocked him heading out to recess. mallika henderson, political reporter at "the washington post" and john stanton, washington bureau chief, thank you both for being here. >> john, i want to start with you. citing panetta is not the man that the audience thought they'd be hearing from. does washington's ability portray any weakness to the international community? >> i don't know if it'
with chuck hagel. >> i want to play something that senator john mccain said on fox news thursday and get your take on the other side. take a listen. >> there's a lot of ill will towards senator hagel because when he was a republican, he attacked president bush mercilessly, he was very anti-his own party and people. people don't forget that. >> and that, my friend, is exactly what you just said, general, speaks exactly to what you just said. what kind of relationship will he have with congress once he's confirmed. >> well he's going to represent the national security interest of the united states up there so i think the question is really what kind of relationship does congress have with him? these men and women in the united states senate, in the congress, need to respect chuck hagel and they need to work with him and that's their obligation as elected representatives of the american people, just like it's his obligation to work with them. he'll do the best he can. he'll be straightforward. he'll be honest. maybe there will be some lingering resentments, but there shouldn't be. >> john allen,
john mccain unfriending him on facebook, is there going to be any lasting impact from this rancor or bitterness? >> perhaps further filibusters of more important -- secretary of defense maybe another supreme court justice. i can see a filibuster of the supreme court justice. >> but didn't they damage their ability to do that because at a certain point, is the fatigue setting in. even the rabid supporters of the tea parties and the lindsey graham you keep filibustering everything and everybody they'll crack. >> john: not to mention all of the time they spent screaming benghazi at a man who had nothing to do with benghazi. >> he didn't do himself any favors with the testimony. it was really -- >> john: i haven't seen a performance like that since obama's first debate. we'll take a break and my panel and i will see about glenn beck. with award winning documentaries that take you inside the headlines. real, gripping, current. documentaries... on current tv. >> john: i hate to bring bad news but glenn beck is still having a hard time getting along with people outside his bubble. now he
milbank. dana, good to have you here. and don't we have senator john mccain, and we know how this went down, several other republicans were very tough through that confirmation hearing, but they said yesterday they would not support a filibuster of hagel's confirmation, as threatened by senate republican leader mitch mcconnell. so would it be historic, or do you think that it's really possible? >> to actually proceed with a filibuster? >> to proceed with a filibuster, yeah? >> it's a theoretical possibility. it would be such an extraordinary escalation of the wars here in washington, which are already completely out of control. so, yes, they could do it. but just the very notion of them filibustering, one of their former republican colleagues, and not because they found him unfit to serve for some personal reason or related to his capacity to serve, but because they don't like his policies. and guess what, those policies happen to be the policies of the president who just won re-election. it would be an awful precedent to start. i would be awfully surprised if they really wanted to go
? >> yes. >> now, john mccain has already think that he doesn't think republicans ought to filibuster this. what will you do? you're just going to put a hold on it? >> yeah, i'm not filibustering. this is a national security failure of monumental proportions, and i'm not going to stop until we get to the bottom of it. >> first of all, i'm shocked. you know, lindsey graham doesn't usually like getting in front of a camera and going on the sunday talk shows. so i'm shocked that lindsey actually was on. >> i think it was a stakeout. >> it must have been a stakeout. >> he staked out "face the nation." when they unlocked the door, he ran in. >> chased bob schieffer. you know, somebody ought to tell the republicans in the senate that they need to talk to lindsey. you know, it's kind of like when regis did "who wants to be a millionaire?" it worked one night a week. >> it worked. >> but then abc said it works one night. then two, then three, then five, then seven. >> then it stops working. >> it stops working. >> yeah. >> lindsey's on -- >> are there any other republicans who want to be on televi
directly from saudi arabia, came directly from north korea -- >> that got him a smackdown from john mccain. >> no one on this committee at any time should impune his character or integrity. >> from democrats, suggestions of mccarthyiasm. >> it was rep nis sent of bad times. >> i do find it ironic in the course of labeling me, they also chide me for not respecting comedy. >> it's clear cruz did not run for senate to make friends. >> i find it amusing that those in washington are puzzled when someone actually does what they said they would do. >> now one gop senator i spoke to about cruz saying that even in the case of healthy egos, cruz stands out for his ego and a tea party activist said that, wolf, he could do well with a small dose of humor. but still it's very clear, talking to cruz, watching him, he relishes the kind of criticism. >> a lot of republicans will reject the nomination of chuck hagel to be defense secretary but only three. he was one of them, rejected john kerry. why did he he reject john kerry? >> because john kerry has agreed to and supported too many international treati
which i've always liked. i liked bob kerrey for that reason. at one time, i liked john mccain for that reason until he became a grouch. i like chris christie. he's young. he's not wrong about everything. but i'm worried about him. >> there is a big difference between being a little overweight, having a couple of spare pounds or extra pounds and being as big as chris christie is. really and truly. he is not -- he doesn't look healthy. he's not healthy. speaking as a person who used to be as big as chris christie, every fat person i ever knew and met said oh, i'm overweight but i'm still pretty healthy. you're not. >> bill: connie mariano, it is not like she's a democrat attacking him. she's not -- it's not like he's corey booker, right saying we gotta get him out of there because he's going to die or something. she's a doctor. she's a republican. who's just saying you know what? you ought to pay attention to this. >> put it this way, when was the last time you saw a 70-year-old man who was as fat as chris christie? you don't. because they don't make it to be 70. >> bill: all ri
ground and work together as adults, john mccain's calling him an ex-republican. >> stephanie: they cannot get over he was right about iraq. >> oh, totally. >> stephanie: remember representative walter jones, republican of north carolina? he was the freedom fries guy. that guy. [ ♪ "world news tonight" ♪ ] he suggested to a libertarian group that former vice president dick cheney will end up in a fiery place for his role in the iraq war. he said congress will not hold anyone to blame. lyndon johnson is probably rotting in hell. he probably needs to move over for dick cheney. >> stephanie: that's freedom fries. >> i want to send that guy some french fries. where can we send them from? with a copy of an -- a biography of thomas jefferson about the time he spent in france reading the koran. >> stephanie: tony in florida you're on with hal. hi tony. >> caller: how are you? >> stephanie: good. >> caller: good, can you hear me all right? >> stephanie: yep. go ahead. >> caller: i didn't know if you had seen anything yet but collier county, florida which is down south florida naples area -- >>
john mccain and jeff flake, the two senators from arizona, having to sort of go back and forth and back and forth and slowly move their constituents along. and the way they do that is by talking tough on the border. >> yes. and this is politics playing out. right after the election, even sean hannity said well, maybe i'm for some kind of a border thing. the people in the republican party voting in these republican primaries, they're not sold on this. and i think senator mccain found that when he went back to arizona. it's going to happen time and time again. and they do have to bring them along. >> it's going to be tough in louisiana, too, isn't it? >> very. >> mary landrieu. is mary, the democratic senator, going to talk about we need immigration reform? >> i'll let her speak for herself. the argument to make is you're rewarding people out of here illegally. that's not what you should do. there are many arguments against that that i agree with. she's right, the border, for whatever reason, it might be because of our economy. it might be because of increased security. it might be becaus
